beyond imagination  
i've come to the conclusion that i'm not very good at budgeting. i got paid yesterday and somehow have left myself with only $ 25 to get me through the next 2 weeks. mind, that's after car loan payment, health insurance, phone bill, board, money into savings account for england (although not as much as i said i was going to put in each pay :X), petrol, meds, and paying off credit card so i'm debt free by the new month. so... i have no money, but at least my bills & essentials are covered. i suppose that's something.

it's my own fault for buying stamps & ink on ebay. but um, they were so cheap? well, not cheap when you don't have any money left.

i think my priorities are messed up.

tonight i worked some more on the flb notebook; i'm going to try and get my section done by the end of the weekend so i can finally mail it out. loads of other projects to work on and i'm being ever so inspired again by fabulous craft blogs and zines and oh, so many amazing things to be enlightened by and i want to do absolutely everything and not sleep (ever). it's finally the weekend and i'm happyhappyhappy. the bad things at work seem like a distant memory already, and that's how it should be. 2 days to not think about it; i've already forgotten it.

and next week i have my 3 days off which is even more exciting, and i won't even have mondayitis on sunday night because how can one dread only 2 days of work? i'm going to write as much as i want to, and visit friends, and make packages (even though they might have to wait until next month to be posted out, i only have 9 stamps to last me until then!) and hopefully spend time with my sister as well. today i'm in love with listening to the operababes and i'm a dork, but i'm proud to be. i've started working on yet another zine, which will probably be winterspark #4, and i wish i could afford to order more to read, because there are so many wonderful ones out there, really.

i ache to be inspired. every minute, every day. let it wash over me...

I am horrible at budgeting, too. Whenever I visit an auction site, I end up spending far more than I should. I hate how the guilt of spending future money stops me from enjoying the items I purchase sometimes.

You sound like you are much better at budgeting than I.
